I became a part of the NJCU community during my last two semesters there. I took Memoir Workshop in the Fall of 2014 and Advanced Memoir in the Spring of 2015 with Dr.. Edi Giunta and my whole life changed. I became a Memoir writer and an African American woman writer. Edi focused on my memoir Memories of Me both semesters I took Memoir with her. This Christmas I thank God for Edi Giunta for believing in my ability as a memoir writer and for saying she’d be my editor and all I had to do is write and use The Art of Slow Writing by Louise DeSalvo. Amazing teacher! Oh and I got an A in Advanced Memoir.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 48-credit BA degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
